Armed police swooped on a stolen car in March high street after spotting it parked outside Domino’s Pizza, officers have revealed.
Dramatic pictures emerged from Broad Street on June 15 after two police vans and two cars – one being an armed response vehicle – stopped in the town.
Officers were seen arresting three men who were sat inside the white Hyundai i10 at around 10am and debate began on social media on what was happening.
Andrew Stockbridge, eyewitness, said: “The driver of the car was taken very leisurely, with no stress, away in the van.”
Describing the moment police stopped the car, he said: “It appears the ARV [armed response vehicle] blocked suspect car in.
